Wildland Fire Safety

The Wildland Fire Team:
"We get by with a lot of help from our friends!"


The Forest Service firefighters are the best trained and the best equipped firefighters in the world. Even so, we need the talents and sheer person-power of our partners to fight fires, and to enhance the resources through fuels reduction projects.

With many jurisdictions in the country susceptible to wildland fire, cooperative agreements outline how the Forest Service will respond in providing mutual aid and cost effective fire protection for public lands and surrounding communities, especially those in the wildland/urban interface.

The Forest Service also has a variety of programs to help State and rural firefighters enhance their departments with equipment, training and communications.
